Dont try it yourself. It's a total pain in the assss. Get a local body shop that's done it before to do it. You'll thank me later.

Drivers door electric window cable broke need to how to repair

You can get the whole assembly for about 60 bucks online or 700 from the dealership *caugh caugh*. The cable is essentially tied to the guide rack and more difficult to assemble when they are apart. Simplest is to get the whole assembly from ebay or even remanufacturerd assemblies will be sufficient.
There are only 4 bolts that you need to undo, after you have your door panel off, to take your old one out. No issues with aligning the window as it just rests on the lift and is held in place by a plastic bracket which also aligns it... I went to a junk yard and pulled the whole assembly out of a crashed Intrique in 15 minutes and had it installed in my car within 25 minutes... Just make sure you have a socket wrench kit and you are set...

How to replace the exterior door handle,both sides,on a 1992 Chevy S10 pick up. Is there an on line illustrated manual I can download or copy? I will need step by step instructions. Illustrated step by...

remove seat belt bolts and pull it out. the rest is just held in with tabs.

..or if you want Forget taking the door apart - just remove the two bolts holding the latch assembly to the door - Pull the latch assembly out far enough to see the pin that goes through the broken handle - drive the pin out far enough to remove the handle - insert new handle that you just removed from the replacement latch assembly - drive pin back in - Throw the rest of the replacement kit away since all that was broken was a tab on the handle you just replaced.

hope this helps a lot. :)

Back passanger window has come off track/cables. What is the best fix...the window has dropped to the bottom

you will need to replace the window regulator assembly.

this is a one piece design with the window motor, cables and rails serviced as an assembly.

you will need to remove the door panel, pull the window back up and wedge cardboard between the glass and door, remove the two bolts holding the glass to the regulator, remove the couple of bolts holding the regulator assemblt to the door, unplug window motor, and replace with new assembly.

this is not a tough repair, with basic handtools and common sense anybody can make the repair

good luck

Electric window cable solution

My drivers side quit working. I took the door/window assembly apart and found that a small plastic clip had worn/broken. I modified it to hold the cable securely. The problem I had was knowing how the cables routed in the door and window assembly to put it back together. I found an online picture of a new one and routed my cables per the photo. It has not given me problems since. Time invested, about 3 hours. Cost was $0. If you buy a new one, cost is about $80 (online) and time would be about 2 hours. If you have the $$, buy a new one.
